Miller Brewing Company's 160th Anniversary Event

Guests who submit a completed single passport for each week during September will also be registered to win a pair of tickets to a historic brewmaster-moderated beer pairing dinner in our famous Miller caves on November 4, 2015. 

Our founder, Frederick J. Miller, followed his brewing passion from the German state of Hohenzollern to the United States, taking over the Plank Road Brewery from the Best brothers in 1855. Now, 160 years later, we celebrate the efforts of a young, entrepreneurial brewmaster who turned a pocketful of yeast into a brewing icon. Celebrate with us in September 2015, as we host guests from around the world and tell the story of young Frederick.

Each week we will highlight a different era from Miller’s storied past, and we’ll toast with 1855 Lager, only available via samplings on the Miller Brewery Tour. Our month-long activities also include an 1855 Miller Valley Passport Book, where guests can obtain three stamps during each visit to be redeemed for a free gift at the end of their tour (one gift per day, must be 21 or older to participate).

We’ll also use Miller’s private archive collection to tell this timeless story, each week highlighting our history with images and artifacts from our collection. Retail discounts, commemorative 160th merchandise and photo packages will be available throughout the month. This event only comes along once every 160 years, so don’t miss it. We can’t wait to see you for your Miller Time visit soon! No purchase necessary. See www.themillerbrewerytour.com for rules and regulations on this event All ages welcome! Beer samples for those 21 and older with valid picture ID.
